Subject: Actually Somewhat Poignant
This episode was interesting for a lot of reasons. It was my first time encountering Jackie Gleason in his pre-Kramden glory. He's truly an everyman here, stuck with the struggle of not being able to provide enough. Really a good reminder of what matters most.

Subject: To Laugh or To Not Laugh (22 Minutes Long)
Excuse me for asking, but does this show seem to have a laugh-track on some episodes but none on others?

The episode is what you'd expect, the picture quality is bad, the sound quality is good, and at 22 minutes, this is either an edited print, or the show had more advertising than the average show of the period (I've seen enough early TV to know that the average running time was about 24 to 26 minutes of actual show back then on US Network TV, compared with 20 minutes to 23 minutes on US Network TV today. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, like "The Magic Clown").

(Yeah, I'm gonna post that on each review).

The show itself is FUN. Riley is a riveter, so low paid that his children can't afford a new coat (daughter) or tickets to a sports event (son). Due to loud noises during a phone-call, he thinks he's got the Assistant Manager job, but he hasn't. The episode is good, not extremely funny but watchable.
